You can make each limb a group [highlight, CTRL+G] then use the free form tool to animate. But its actually best to redraw every frame... Its not possible to make it all one symbol where each limb will drag the other limbs with it to where you move it like in pivot, you have to select all limbs you want to move.

Why would you wanna do it like pivot? Why not just do it like most Flash users do and redraw the stick each frame with the brush or pencil tool? It's actually easier than it sounds and much less of a hassle than using the line drag method to move the limbs around because instead of moving each individual limb into position for each frame, you just draw the whole stick into the desired position. And you don't have to worry about the head, just use the circle tool to make it and then convert it to a movie clip or graphic symbol and move it around each frame.
